Program

Antonio Vivaldi, Six Sonatas for Violoncello Solo col Basso (1720–30):
No. 1 in B-flat Major, RV 47; No. 2 in F Major, RV 41;
No. 3 in A Minor, RV 43; No. 4 in B-flat Major, RV 45;
No. 5 in E Minor, RV 40; No. 6 in B-flat Major, R 46

After last season’s triumphant performance of Bach cello sonatas, the extraordinary Queyras returns to the Gardner to play Vivaldi’s set of six cello sonatas, the only such works he ever published. These glorious works show less-familiar aspects of Vivaldi’s art—by turns learned and introspective, elegant and fiery. In short, ravishing music.
